Yao On Trial at West Ham
Saturday, 24th Jul 2010 17:41
Former Town midfielder Devann Yao is on trial with West Ham and scored a goal as a Hammers XI lost 4-2 to League Two Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium this afternoon. The American was released by Town at the end of the season.
The 20-year-old wideman netted his goal just before half-time, curling the ball into the net from 16 yards.
The New Yorker, who was previously with Metz, Pisa, Livorno and St Mirren, spent a long spell on trial with the Blues late last year, winning himself a contract until the end of the season. However, the Yao failed to impress in Townâ€™s reserves and was let go in May without making a senior appearance.

We Couldn't Wish for an Easier Run of Games by BossMan

Many fans seem to think there is little to choose between our goalkeepers, I disagree.
Mick Not the Man for Town (Part Two) by BossMan
Last August I wrote a blog suggesting that Mick was the wrong man for the job, despite the fact that he had just signed a new three-year deal.
What Do We Expect of Our Club? by DurhamTownFan
A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog on the subject of Townâ€™s playing style under Mick McCarthy. Having been humbled at Old Trafford, I wanted to see how everyone felt about what I perceived to be a rather attritional and outdated brand of football seen here and in pretty much every other Ipswich game since McCarthy arrived.
